Quality and Safety Education for Nurses Competencies in Doctor of Nursing Practice Education: Exemplars From Education and Practice
Graduate level Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) competencies were created to facilitate preparation of the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) graduate to have an impact on health care system changes, advance nursing practice, and improve the health of populations. Although there is agreement that QSEN competencies are important to DNP education, little is known about implementation of the competencies. This article describes the importance of QSEN competencies in DNP education and provides exemplars of QSEN competencies in DNP education and practice.
